About Me

  • Hello! Thank you so much for visiting me in the Attic, it's lovely to see you. My name is Lucy and I'm a happily married Mum with three children. We live in a cosy terraced house on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales in England which we are slowly renovating and making home. I have a passion for crochet and colour and love to share my creative journey. I hope you enjoy your peek into my colourful little world x

It does look very jolly indeed. Lovely pattern. Thank you for sharing, as always xx

I hope the sun is shining for you today!

Love Vanessa

I am sooooo tempted Lucy....they look lovely and I fancy trying chunkey yarn. Well done on your venture....go you xx


Oh, the bag is sooo beautiful! I think I might need to order yarn from GB again!

I am glad you get a small comission for every sale! :-)

Take care,


Love the bag, thanks for sharing- again! Totally agree with commission arrangement :)

Working in the round your joins are so neat, I struggle with this. Is it just practice or do you have a trick you can share?


I love the bag too, the colours are so happy and bright and the flowers and buttons finish it perfectly. Thank you for sharing!


Well done on your negotiations with Wool Warehouse. I know it shouldn't be about the money when it comes to crafting but we all have to make a living don't we so if that opportunity presents itself Lucy you would be mad not to take it otherwise someone else will. Hope they get lots of orders.


Aha - great timing, I have not long finished the cushion as a gift for my Mum, now she will be getting the matching bag too with those remaining 50g. Love your designs and wonderful generosity too, so am delighted that you are getting commission - you absolutely must be boosting their sales (shame I bought before the availability of the cushion pack - but have also had two of the granny stripe packs and will be back for more). These make lovely affordable gifts and are great for getting children going. You change and brighten peoples lives Lucy, I hope you know. :-)


Hi Lucy
Good for you being able to make a little something from this - you give so much and unfortunately its still not possible to live off fresh air !
have a lovely Easter,
Kate x


Thank you sooooo much !
I bought the pack, I'm sooo happy :D


Yay!! How exciting! I saw your Facebook post about the blog last night and, in a wine fuelled frenzy, I ordered the complete pack straight away!! To be fair to the wine, it is such a good deal, I would have ordered it anyway, wine or no wine!

I'm so pleased that you have collaborated with the Wool Warehouse - a great way of supporting each other and ensuring you both go from strength to strength!

I can't wait for my jolly, rainbowy parcel of yarny joy to arrive!!

Michele Alexander

I love it!......as always your projects are so inspiring! xx

Michele Pinney

You are a true legend Lucy


Shoot, Lucy. You're already boosting yarn sales by blogging about it. You might as well make a little something from it. More. More, I say! I love the convenience of being able to buy a kit all put together, and there are so few out there as charming as yours.


Well done Lucy onacceptinga small commission fron Wool Warehouse-you are so generous with your time and expertise and you deserve some recompense. Your bag is really jolly and if only I lived mearer I could join one of your classes.


A very jolly bag indeed, I really like working with chunky yarn, so much quicker to make something! I've used your bag pattern a couple of times, one I used three strands of yarn and a small hook to make a very sturdy basket, it's a very useful thing to have on my bedside table


LUCY bad girl LOL, I live on a boat with my partner (his boat) and storage is a premium and I've got about 4 crochet/knitting things started lol and about 4 large carriers of spare wool, and i'm slow at it to grr annnnnnnnnnnnnnnd nowhere as good as you. You inspired me to teach myself to crochet a couple of summers ago anyway guess im going to be naughty and buy the chunky pack lol i hope i can hide it before he comes back from India lol x love your blog your patterns etc, but i don't think i will ever manage to be as good as you but would love to give the bag ago xx


Thank you so much for giving us this new pattern Lucy! I've ordered my pack already...your more than deserve a commission on the sales! Big hugs Amanda xxx

Rona Sari
